"Clear grading criteria" "Would take again" "Tests are tough"

Great Professor! I love him so much that I'd take him again for any Math course. His explanations and notes are very thorough. I felt like things were a bit rushed at the end and his final exam was harder than the course materials, but overall he's a good professor to take and his grading policy is fair, IMO.

I love him!! Considering the fact that this class was at 8 in the morning he really tried to keep it interesting. He goes on little rants that have nothing to do with the class in the middle of his lesson and he tries to learn stuff from us. Everything we say he is really interested in it. Take him he is adorable!!

Dr. Mammo makes his class very interesting and easy to learn. He teaches you step by step how to do math, and explains clearly for the reason for them. I highly recommend Dr. Mammo to anyone.

MATH131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Mammo is an awesome teacher. He's really enthusiastic about math. He makes sure to go over everyone's questions, and he goes over everything in detail so no-one gets lost. His tests can be kind of long, but they're not harder than you'd expect for college math. (Sometimes he asks his class to write a paper about their academic history though)

Such an amazing teacher, had him for Calc I & II and he made the experience so enjoyable. He is so focused on how to help students and make the material easier to understand. Always asking for constructive criticism as well to even better his teaching. Just a great teacher, always offers help and makes an otherwise difficult course bearable

Mammo's a great guy. He has such a mastery of math, that he has no problem simplifying it and furthermore explaining it properly. He kept the class laughing the whole way, but he was straightforward on what material will be on the tests. The homework isn't always graded, but he likes to know you do them, and it helps a lot in the class.

Professor Mammo is really good, at first it can be hard to understand his accent but he is really good at explaining the mathematical concepts and when you ask him questions he makes sure you understand before moving on. Homework assignments are not graded but you should do them to do well on the exams. The exams are easy if you do the homework.

GREAT professor. Makes the classes laugh out loud constantly in an otherwise long, boring class. He is very passionate about the subject and very helpful, but tends to be very picky and strict about partial credit on tests. Does his best to help his students due well though. Absolutely recommend.

Although the calc class is a difficult class to begin with, Mammo makes it very fun. He is a great teacher if you have some idea of what to do (if u dont u shudnt take calc II to begin with). He grades pretty tough, but it isnt hard to get an A

Best math teacher I had. Never gets frustrated with class and will answer any question completely until the questioner understands. Makes it very easy to ask questions even if you think they are silly questions.
